Continuing Education


Deadline Extension

The NCREC granted an automatic extension of time to brokers who did not complete their 8 hours of CE by June 10. You will have until September 30 to satisfy your CE for the 19–20 license year. Please note that the 2019-2020 BICUP and GenUp Update courses will no longer be offered.


  • If you completed the 2019-2020 Update by June 10, but not an elective, you need to take an elective by September 30.
  • If you completed an elective by June 10, but not a 2019-2020 Update course, you need to complete another elective course by September 30.
  • If you completed no CE courses by June 10, you must complete 2 different elective courses by September 30.

You will then return to the customary Update + 1 elective CE requirement for the 2020-2021 license year. You can view the schedule of courses below.
